How's the beta going? The Open Beta for players on the PlayStation and the pre-order beta for PC and Xbox will start at 7 p.m. on September 16. From September 18 at 7 p.m., testers will also be able to access the servers on Xbox and PC without pre-ordering.

During the test you can play around a quarter of the release content from the multiplayer and get the opportunity to get an impression of the new CoD before buying.

However, you shouldn't approach your matches the way you normally do in CoD. Follow our 3 tips and experience more of the game and maybe even discover a new style of play that you will have a lot of fun with. 

1. Tip - Don't worry about your kill / death ratio

How is that meant? The beta is separate from the later main game and you don't have to worry about your statistics during the entire test. Your kills, deaths, levels and whatever else goes with them do not affect your statistics in the finished game.

The kills / deaths ratio in particular is an important value for many players that should look reasonable. It usually starts when you are good enough to hold the 1.0, i.e. you have as many kills as there are deaths. The focus on a good kill / death ratio leads to pressure and you can tend to try little new and prefer to use the familiar and proven equipment and playing styles.

But that's all sausage in the beta. Whistle on the statistics, try something new and if it doesn't work - try something different again. Break out of your usual CoD routine, play unfamiliar modes or talk to the random players in the matches. You can still be normal after the release.

2. Tip - Play your way through all weapon classes

How is that meant? The weapon mechanics in Call of Duty are among the most important mechanics in the game and each Call of Duty has its own way of dealing with weapons.

On the one hand, this makes the gunplay feel “fresh” year after year. On the other hand, it may be that you didn't like a certain weapon class like the sniper rifles in the last CoD at all, but the feel of the game in Vanguard corresponds exactly to your ideas.

Even if you have to force yourself: Make sure to try all weapon classes in Vanguard. At the beginning of the beta, you will only have ready-made loadouts available. From level 4, however, you can choose at least one weapon from each weapon class and you can unlock more weapons by leveling up.

Start with the assault rifle and play your way through all classes. You will then get a feel for how Vanguard interprets the gunplay and you may be playing the sniper this year and not the aggressive front pig with the submachine gun at the ready.

Tip 3 - Try the new Combat Pacings

How is that meant? One of the biggest, if not the biggest innovations from Vanguard is the Combat Pacings. Matches in CoD used to be designed for 6v6 players, with Vanguard the number of players is a little more variable.

As it currently looks, you can not only play all maps and modes with the "tactical speed", ie 6vs6; but you can also select the "attack speed" and "lightning speed". Basically, this means that there are more players in the match. Depending on the map, up to 48 players fight each other in one match at lightning speed.

  • Tactics: Classic CoD experience with 6v6 players
  • Attack: There are between 20 - 28 players on a map
  • Blitz: Between 28 and 48 players can accelerate on a map
